Portraits of D-Day veterans, commissioned by the Prince of Wales, are going on show at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
The exhibition, The Last of the Tide, pays tribute to the men who took part in the D-Day landings on June 6 1944 and includes a number of portraits of veterans from Scotland.
It was commissioned by Charles, who is known as the Duke of Rothesay in Scotland, following his attendance in 2014 at the 70th anniversary commemorations in France of the Allied invasion of Normandy.
The largest amphibious invasion in history, the D-Day landings of the Second World War involved some 7700 ships and 12,000 aircraft, and led to the liberation of occupied France.
The 12 veterans in the portraits, shown wearing their medals, all served in regiments with which the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay have a formal association.
The portraits have been created by different artists, including Jonathan Yeo, and winners of the BP Portrait Award Catherine Goodman, James Lloyd, Ishbel Myerscough and Stuart Pearson Wright.
Writing in the catalogue accompanying the Edinburgh show, Charles said: “I am delighted to introduce this exhibition of portraits of veterans of the D-Day landings and very much hope that all who see it will share my belief that this wonderful collection of paintings captures the spirit, resolve, warmth and humanity of these remarkable men.
“It seemed to me a tragedy that there were no portraits of D-Day veterans, hence this collection of remarkable old soldiers from the regiments of which my wife and I are colonel or colonel-in-chief.”
Aberdeen-based veteran Eric Johnstone, who was a trooper with the 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards, said: “I am proud to have served in a victorious British Army and am very conscious of the sacrifice of many of my comrades.
“History should be remembered and I am grateful to the Prince of Wales for commissioning this exhibition.”
The exhibition will run from January 15 until March 28.
